Dear Martin: Thanks for the msg. I have been to several lectures by Sri Ram
and I did not meet him personally. Still I will post a brief msg
summarizing a few observations about him which might interest some.

My given name is Ramdas, which is Ram or Rama, the well known Indian God
and Avatar as well as a historical figure - good guy whose wife Sita was
abducted by the bad guy Ravana and finally bad guy is defeated and wife
rescued. Das means a follower of Ram/Rama. Along the way in my school,
those days all records were handwritten, no computers, the clerk was always
misspelling my name as Ramadoss. Everytime we corrected, next month it went
back to the same spelling. that's how I got my name! Finally we gave up and
it is my legal name.

Your friend
